017: Benjamin Breckheimer
In this episode I’m joined by my dear friend Benjamin Breckheimer. Ben joined me on the very first episode of the Combat Flags podcast to share his extraordinary story of injury, depression and, most importantly, resiliency.
Following a life changing IED blast in Afghanistan, Ben committed to himself to summit the highest peak on each continent.
On June 13, 2021, Ben summited the seventh of the famed 7 summits, landing him a place in the history books as the first combat wounded veteran Purple Heart Recipient to summit each of the 7.
In this episode Ben shares his perspectives on the positive aspects of the outdoors and how pushing your own limits can help make life more enjoyable and meaningful.
